Ok, this is one of those, 'why does my camera hate me?' pictures - the colors are really bright and jewely in person

Mango Moon Silk Shawl

Materials:

Mango Moon recycled sari silk (1 hank)
US 17 needles (circular would be nice, but you can cram it all onto 12" needles)
Instructions
Cast on 3. 
Row 1 (RS): K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1
Row 2 (WS): purl.
Repeat these two rows until you have about 8 yards of yarn left, ending with RS facing for next row.
Next row: K1, *yo, k2tog.  Repeat from * to end of row (depending on number of sts, you may have only 1 st after last yo, in which case, just knit it.)
Bind off in purl.

Oh, I do wish that picture had come out more vivid; I bet that recycled silk yarn is so beautiful.  Thanks for the pattern!

That is so neat! Please let us know how it holds up-- I've heard that the fabric untwists in the yarn over time and can wear really badly in shoulder areas and elbow areas. I'd love to know that it *doesn't*, because the yarn is so pretty.

sorry, guys.  That shawl is now happily living in Scotland with it's new owner.  I would think that the fragility would mean that an accessory would be better than a garment.  I also thought that the yarn was too busy (what with all the colors and the frayed ends sticking out) to be a good garment, but it makes a beautiful accent piece.

The yarn is so gorgeous, but I've seen some of the patterns worked up in it (sweater, jacket, that kind of thing) and they were, let's say, not to my taste.

knitty has a really cute bag called bbias in it too.


as to the fragility- yep it is a bit!  I made bias and a section wore through- so bags might need to be lined, but i havent had any problems with the scarf wearing out yet.

Casting on this weekend! Yay! Good to find a new pattern for this yarn - I got so much of it when I visited Chiang Mai!

Finished up the scarf - my hank of course has no yardage (or label for that matter) - since I buy it in Chiang Mai Thailand, picked up out of a box in a shop on the street ... The shawl ended up measuring 39" across and 34" on each side, not stretched out - the weight of course would pull it out more. Here are a couple shots of it (couldn't find a model *sigh*)
